J0J5N B. DH AKIC, et al,

AppelL&nt. ) j-A - '^ 



This w&u a auit for broker* s comriilssions bai.-e(i upon 
the claim th: t the plaintiff, . ournlque, wna the authorized 
ngent of defendant, JJrake, to find a purcbueer of oertain 
real estate belonging to tho estate of John • Drake, ir«, 
and that he wee the procuring oaut.G of the sale thereof. 
Judgment waa for plaintiff for ^>27,5G0, - 2i-5r; of $1,100,000, 
the price for which the property waa sold, 

'e have car-efully considered tho evidence r.nd the 
force of the inferences drawn by counsel on both nldee from 
Tery conflicting and irreconcilable teotiraony, - nd are firmly 
lnpre»8ed th.-t the Judgment must bo reversed on the ground 
that the preponderance of tho vlflenco 1b agalnut the verdict 
BO far as It ImplietJ that plaintiff tietn the procuring cauao 
of the sale* 

Two main fttcto essential to recovery were stoutly 
contested, (1) Tiournlque^s agency, and (2), t}ii.t ho was the 
efficient or procuring cnuue of the acle. If the case de- 
pended alone on Gutablishlnc; the forirer, wc mi^^ht not, in 
view of the chf-r. oter of tho conflicting tivldonce on that 
subject, dli turb the Jury'n findlnt';, depending, nv it largely 
doee, on tlie jury's view of thR credibility of the 7?itnesoea,

plaintiff wan bound to establish to entitle him to recover 

But this ia not the- case ■ith tlie other important fact whicii 

and whioh he failed Lo do by a preponderance of evidence* 
Consideration of the evidence bearing on that subject will 
obviate the ncceesity of dlBcueaing tht^ alleged errors in 
the courue of trial* 

Tho property In question w- s purchased by the 
trustees of the estate of Kar shall T-'ield, July 7, 1910. They 
were Chauncey Keep, Arthur h, Jones and the Merchants Loan c 
Trust Company, for which its president, oreon Jmith, and in 
his absence its vice president, .. r>. Hulbert, acted. All 
negotiations in which the terms of sale were discu sed, set- 
tled and concluded were had directly between defen'iant Drake, 
acting for the ovners, and one or more of the trustees of the 
Field eutate. With these negotiations plaintiff had nothing 
to do. In fact, he wjb entirely ignerent of the«. The main 
quostion is whether he brought them about. 

The evidence shows that the property was first 
offered to the Field e tate by ;iefendant Drake. This was in 
19G7 and 19C8» Plaintiff brought the matter before the 
trustees, whether in 1908 or 19C9, about which there was some 
controversy or doubt, is Ir material, but it wnu after Lirake'a 

It is undisputed thfit plaintiff had ncveral conversa- 
tions with defendrnt -^rake relative to eff ctin-r a sale of the 
property, « Drake claiming Bournique w; s to get comroiusions in 
c. EC of a sale from the purchoser - that Drake put a price of 
;)!, 250,000 thereon; that plaintiff had several interviews with 
two of the trustees. Keep and Jones, relative to inducing a 
purchase of the property by the Field estate, and th? t to the 
same end he enlisted the service of Hugh T. lUrch, who inter-

viewed Keep and Jones, and also Orson mith on the subject. 
But it does not appe&r whether the trur.teea, na euch, eyer 
eoncidercd the offers or when tliey decided to wake the pur- 
chase or that their action ■^■•■i-' induced by or the re-uit of 
t):s interviews had with either Bournique or IJirch. The 
most th: t can bo claimed in behalf of plointiff is tliat the 
eridence shows he submitted an offer to the trustees for 
)1, 25c, 000, and th. t aubsoquently they purchfoed the proi^ftrty, 
though at a sum .150,000 lens, v.hile evidence of his efforts 
and the fact of a sale night, without expl; nc.tion, tend to 
shovf he W!io the procuring cause of the atle and wjvrriint sub- 
misoion of the question to the Jury, yet ouch f;)icts are not in> 
consistent vrith defendant* o testimony tending to show that 
other influences were controlling. 

It appears that the trusteee, or sores of them, knew 
this property was in the ra;-rket, but that they were not in a 
position to give tlrie matter serious consideration either when 
Drake or Hournique submitted aa offer, because proceedings were 
then pending in court to construe tho power of the trustees to 
sell and purchase real eutate, and that after obtainln/?: a de* 
cree favorable to the exeroioe of such power, the trustee s had 
to wait for fundti to accumulate before they could entv.rtain a 
proposition. Of theses facts both ? ourniiue and Birch were ad- 
vised, and the last action taken by either of them respecting 
the matter whc to odvise Drake thfit there nothing to do 
but to Whit* Up to that time, which wa:3 early in 191C, there 
is no things in t>ie reoenl to diticlo^e that the subject h- d ever 
been taiien up or considered by the trustees, individually or 
as a body, toid tiio vidence tends i^trongly to show that they 
never of /ered Bournique .my encouragement to believe that they 
would concider making a deal through him, and we find little, 
if anything;, in the record to di close th;it hie repeated

what had paaaed between the Drakea and himself, he could not

time disposed to purchase the property* 

A letter from Bournlque to Keep, written Hovoirber

Both K«ep and Joneu tc»tiflerl that the intervlevrs 
with Bournique hod no influence u on them or the oth'=r tru tee» 
in 2caklng or completing the purchuae, vhilo ouch evidence is 
net conclueive, it «'Ma the only direct vidence on the su'-Ject, 
craon omith did not teatify, and Hulhert, thro gh whom final 
negotiationa for the purchase y;ere begun and cjirried on, testi- 
fied thi.t he n«Ter aaw Bournique or Birch or knew thi.t thoy 
were in any way interesttd in the; r^le of the property, and 
there is no tentimony to the contrary. 

It appeere thnt iiOwetiiDe in April, lOli. , while do- 
fendwnt iir&kn wub in HuHert'a officti in the Merchants Loan 
:^ Trust Company' 8 bank on other busineBo, the B»tter of the 
purchttBo of the property wt\i; in eomc way brought up and 
Hulbert said: "If you »till vamt to siKll and will come <io*a 
to a ref'i.onable price, ve will take it up." The off*?r of 
iJJ.,10G,00t) w: is mH e and, after conBid^rGtion by thr» Urake heire, 
accepted. Prior to thut time rirch h d Bucponded his efforts, 
telling -Jrake there wat nothinr to do but to wuit, end et the 
last interview lournique had on the aubject, which wos sometime 
earlier in the year, K«cp repeated to him whpt he hcd stated 
at the beginning, (rs eljovvn by Bourniq'ie'B letter), that if 
the ield eetite made a deal, it v;ould be made directly with 
the Urakeci theBie elves, Ve fail to see how on such a state of 
facts it can be said th: t pleintiff wati the procurinf: cruse of 
the B^le* 

But it is contended by appellee that negotiations 
with Drake had been broken off ndhen Rournique uubmitted hie 
offer, e think it cun hardly be said from the recorri that any 
negotiationu wore rctually conw.enced until culbert took up the 
natter. If U\c truHteea tor-k it up in .vny way, formally or in- 
form^illy, before that time, it does not appear in the reeord.

palpable «8 thnt the truotees ere induced to net on Bournique'e

Only one other queBtion n^ed \>r- considered. Trie 
contract, er above quoted, made 90^ of the contract price 
due on comjl'^tion of the contract, nnd an action mif7:ht have 
been maintained for hat remained unpaid up to 90,^ when the 
suit wf.s brought provided the contract could on c.ny theory 
of the case have been deemed completed at that time, a"d the 
r.rchitcct hc-d fraudulently refiised to issue a certificate 
therefor. But the record dc^s not show a demand for auch a 
certif"icRte . The proof was thu t the demand was for a 
certificate for the entire balance of tha contract price, 
and th? ruit wa!=' framed and tried upon the is^;ues that the 
entire balance wms due and wrongfully withheld. The judgment, 
therefore, mu^^t be reversed, (l) because, applyinr the terms 
of the oon'ract to ospipntial and undisputed facts, the action 
WHB prematurely brought, and (2), becsn&e there could be no 
recovery on proof of '«?niver of pcrforraancG when the issues 
are formed on the allegation of full r>erf ornance.

consider tiic first asjaif-mnent of error. i'n.« re is no evidence 
in tills record that eitiier the sojiple or the oeans subsequently 
purchased by the defenciant from the plaintiff were chc-.-jically 
exaiuined, »ltiiou^:h it is fidiattea by defercant that only by 
chemical analysis could have been deterii.ined whether or not 
the beans in question had been treated by f;itner f oriiialdenyde

STATE''i'NT 01' THK CAoi^. This is an action by J. Wallace '..^lem, 
vs. The Jolonial Trust i Savings 3a.nk, a corporation, for the 
alleged conversion by said bank of a promissory note in ths sum of 
two thousand dollars ( |j;2000 .'^O ) , made by John I. Cheney, under date 
of July 9th, 191ki, due four months from its date, bearing interest at 
the rate of six per cent per annum, endorsed in blank by Clinton 3. 
Woolfolk and the Realty Realization Company, and of forty shares of 
the capital stock of the said company v/hich was attached to said note 
as collateral security. ) 

Appellee purchased the note from E. C. Keller, Vice President 
and Cashier of the Colonial Imst 'c Savings Bank. About five weeks 
before its maturity, appellee was called on the telephone by Woolfolk, 
one of the said endorsers, who told appellee that he was making ar- 
rangements ivith Keller, the said officer of the bank, to take up the 
note before it became due, anl requested appellee to send it to the 
bank for collection. On October iind, 1912,'. the note with the collatera! 
attached was deposited by appellee's cashier with the bank for collec- 
tion, and thereupon the bank issued its receipt to appellee, under 
said date, recitins; therein that it had received the note for such pur- 
pose. On the same day said endorser's representative called at the 
bank for the note and gave his receipt therefor. 

Appellee, denied that ho authorized the bank to deliver the 
note to the endorser, .Voolfolk. Keller, the bank officer, sai i that 
he had a conversation with appelloo on the sane dav, in wbich conver- 
sation appellee said that the ■ ote .vas being sent to the bank for re- 
duction and renewal, or for some adjustment before maturity. Keller

*ho was also the assistant cashier, for 0. K.; that he, Keller, talk- 
ed over the telephone with appellee, who told -(elier it was all right 
to deliver the note to said endorser. Keller further stated that 
several davd thereafter, ne told appllee that the note had been 
given to such endorser; that appellee, upon learning that the rote 
had not bejn paid, said he did not like "the shape it was in." No 
written authority was given by appellee to the bank to deliver the note 
to the endorser,' and Keller did not recall that he had, at any tine, 
asked for such authority. Aopellee testified, that upon learning from 
Sadler that the note had not beenpaid, instructed the latter, not to 
deliver the note to the said endorser, except upon payment thereof, 
and that .adler so agreed. Sadler did not testify, Keller ad'^iitted 
that he had not informed Sadler that the note had been delivered to 
said en-iorser. 

Appellee and his cashier called, froTr. tine to time, at the 
bank, and inquired as to whether or -^ot the note had beer paid. . Fol- 
iov.'ing the death of the endorser, '/voolfolk, iiarch 26th, 1913, about 
five months after the maturity of the note, appellee for the first 
time, according to his testimony, learned thcit the bank had delivered 
the note to such endorser. Neither the note nor collateral has ever 
been found, and appellee has received no proceeds from either. 

There was a finding in favor of appellee, and Judgment for 

MR. JUSTICE MoGOORTY delivered the opinion of the court. 

The defense set forth by the Colonial Trust and Savings 
Bank, appellant, in its affidavit of merits that the note was an 
aocomir-odation note of .vhioh the appellee had knowledge, was not sup- 
ported by any evidence.

The sole issue of fact presented by the evidence therefore, 
is - was the appellant authorized by appellee, to deliver the note 
and collateral in question to the endorser? If no authority was ^Iven 
to the bank by the appellee, to deliver said rote to the endorser 
thereon for collection, such unautnorizei act on the part of the bank- 
constituted negligence, and such negligence makes the bank liable for 
any loss resulting therefrom, yirst National Bank v. jank of lYhittier , 
ii21 111. 319, 330. 

it is to be borne in mind that this wus a note against 'hicago 
parties, deposited with a Ohica^-^o bank for collection. There is no 
evidence to show that it was not convenient for the endorser, Vi'oolfolk, 
and Mr. Cheney, the naker, or either of them, to go to the bank and 
take up their note. if appellee desired to deliver the note for col- 
lection to the endorser, it does not seen probable that he would use 
the bank as an agent for that purpo^^, instead of 'naking delivery 
direct to the e^'dorser. 

V/e are of the opinion that the court was justified in finding fr 
the evidence that the bank was not authorized by appellee to deliver 
the note to said endorser. The cases cited by appellant .vhere a note 
was forwarded by the receiving bank to an out of town bank for collec- 
tion, even when .^uch out of town bank is liable as maker or endorser, 
are not applicable to the admitted state of facts in this case. 

No complaint was made of the propositions of law held by the 
court, which propositions correctly stated the principles of law ap- 
plicable to the evidence. It is unneoesaary therefore to consider 
the objections to the propositions of law refused. 

We find no reason for disturbing the findinjr of the Municipal

bo made or suit for danagoa for resulting peronal InjULrieg, 
it was ad. fitted thut the pl.-tintiff h;id knowledgo of tf-i acollont 
that oocurred on January l"^, 1D1<!, and that tho wai^on tong'jo hui ^one 
tlirough the door of the street oar. It A-as alao admittQcl that plain- 
tiff nade inquiries for the puriO^g of s.3oertainirg .vhst!;:^r any ono 
waa injured at that time. ■Ividently plaintiff read© there incivlriea 
for the purooae of ascertuanln,- wheth- r any clairr for perjon/xl inlurlaa 
waa likely to bo made. Ihwg© inquiries apparently aatiisfie t the plain- 
tiff thct no 3uch clalin could bo auoce -.'jfTjjlly :vj.da, and therefore it 
did not notify the in3ur<Anco cor«pany. In doir.2 thij, it actev! at its 
peril. The contract doea not nake the duty of ,fr,iving notice of the 
ocoui-rence of accidents dependont up-n the result of thcj plaintiff's 
Inquiriea. It required notice to be given the insurance company, ao 
that the insurance company raay aaoertain the facts for itself. This 
l3 one of tae conditions upon .ihioh the promise of defendant was 
preiioated. vjhen, therefore, the plaintiff aasuiied, as the- remit of 
its own inquiriea, that no claim could aucceaafully be nade for in- 
jury oo any person resulting from the aooi ient, without notifying the 
Intjurunce company aa provided by the contract. It tnereby elected to 
carry the rlak iteelf, and thereby abaolved the insurance conpany from 
liability for any injurioua condequences that '^i,<?ht subsequently be- 
come known. 

it follows th .t tn-j court erred in refuein^ the peremptory 
inotruotion to find for the defendant, which wa3 requested by the de- 
fendant at the clo;.ve of the plalntiff'j case. It followo also that 
ithe plaintiff's .itatenent of olaim, *'iich I3 no broader than the evid- 

ienoe, faila to atato a r,ood oau .^^ of action ap.ainat the def'^ndant. 


jThe Judgment will therefore be reversed and Judf^ment entered in this

won't bo much of a surplus. * After 3one further tulk durinf'^ which 
btillraan pointed out that it wcul l b© difficult to Identify and 
separate the cattle covered by t^'-e several rortgagea, i'hotrtas sug- 
gested that the cattle bu 3old in bulk, and if thyy did not eell for 
erou/^.h to pay the nortpagee, the plaintiffa an I Jtillman would " pro- 
rate any shortase* there might be, ""o thia Jtillnan assented and 
the sale waa isade upon that unlerstandin?;. The ^ross amount realized 
from the sale of cattle upon whl-^h the -plalr tiffs and tillnan held 
nortcageo amounted to ^,lf^,'^8(^t2S>. -Sne Deran gave hi.:, cheolr for 
•|9,137 for cattle purohaaed by hlin at the aalo and this check was 
turned over to the plaintiffs. 

On February 1=>, 1912, otillman wrot • a letter to rhoraas, 
giving an itenizod atatenient of the renulta of the sale. In t]:ia 
ataternent, the groao amount for shioii the cattle upon which the 
plaintiffs and 'otillrtan held niorti?a:];ea wero aold, 'ffa:i »Tiven la 
^15,513.50, and tho amount du"^ on their mortga^-^ea as *1'', "iS^.o?;, 
"leivving a shortage of ^}7A3»0,Z, not taking into account tha exDonae 
of holding': the aale." KOllowln;^ thia, th3 ataternent advia that "' r, 
j.'ro -bridge's sale aaoiinted in the aggregate to iA:3,2';1.7''<,'* that the 
total amount of niortj;age ? and lions againjt hia prop rty, including 
the expenses of the aale, was ^-3, 815. 49, leaving a ahortar.o of 
•iSoS.*^"! . rhii! statement sho-a t^^at a merchant of rjolllver .a i paid 
$100,43 for "lunch for sale," and that the auctioneer 'a fees amounted

anothur item in the aar^ie ataten^ent aa follown; "S per cent, diacount 
on face of aale .^46.^i,23,'' but this item v/a3 not then -axplained. 

Upon receipt of thii letter, the plaintiffs repli;;d express- 
in - their iiurprlae at tho amount of Trowbridge's indebtodnons, and 
urging otlllnian to "raake every effort poaaible to get our money in 
full" and requesting, hirr: to "kindly remit uu the balance due as near 
as poasible ponding the collection of what balance there nay bo."

Aslde frora these queationa, it Is app-irerit from tho briefa 
that the only re-il dispute between the partiea at thi;j tine io as 
to the amount of the ahortage '.vhlch .-ihould be pro-rated under the 
agree^ient made at the tine of the sale. In the letter of .^'ebruary 
15, 1912, this shortage was stated to be J743,85, "not takin;?; into 
account the expense of holdin.'r; the sale," The aawe letter, however, 
8ho*s what was paid out by otlllraan aa the expense of the sale, viz: 
1250.45. In the oecond letter, the expense of saile is ,'?;iven as >4-76,5e, 
which is three per cent, of tho arnount realized frora the sale of the 
cattle on which tj^e plaintiffs and otiilroan had mortgages. There is no 
claim that any such amount was pai;. out by Jtillna.n for expenses of the 

sale. The only attempt to justify tliia item ia the ataten^ent in Still- 
man'S/^letter of June 16, lOli, that " iho arrangement >vith -^ r . '^'row- 
bridge before the aale waa that uti A'ore to clerk the sale and handl e 
all paper s withou t recourse and viera to receive '^y^ discount frora 
face of sale," and the further statement that the three per cent, 
charged ati expense of sale included "auctioneer fee, expenao for lijnch, 
and discount.* There is not a particle of evidence that the plain- 
tiffa were parties to this a^jreeiuent between Jtillman and Trowbridge 
as to a "discount," or fee to the bonk for "handling papom v.ithout 
recourse," and honoe the ite;- uf ^470.53 must be reduced to the 
actual expense of the sale, viz: .;:^60.43. 

upon this basis, we have conputod the amount that .vas due to 
the plaintiffs at tho time the draft *a3 sent to the", and find that 
the balance then iue w i-s ;'<3,779.13, Instead of v3,59sa.?0. The dif- 
ferance is vlB'^.HiJ, ^hich with interest fron February 24, 1^12, 
should have been allowed to the plaintiffs ani added to the anount 
collected later, viz; >11C>.24, The Ju;ir;rient will therefore be 

Teversed; and as tho correct amount due the plaintiffs is nere- 


ly a matter of ooinputation from the admitted facts, the cause will 

not bo renanded, but a judf.ment will be entered in this court in 
favor of the plaintiffs and against the ."Dolliver savings Hark 
jfor v37^.lt3, together ^Ith the costs of thi3 court to be taxed.

relied upon it as tending, to estr.blisA it;i defenae. j.ven

VR. JU.y:iCb m;IJ)OJ.* OELIVKRim TH.€ 01-115 IQK OP THE CuUl.T. 

Thia ia an appeal from a. jucl^^:fl5e!'»t ol tiic superior 
Court rendered en the veraicL of a jury for |-i3,i.i.t/ in an uc- 
tion ai:i'ir:at defenufi-nt for ric£li£;r?ntly oeuiiinf. the cieuth of 
plaintiff 'u intc&lfite. 

N. The error* relied upon for reversal ore tv.-o: - 
That the vtrUxct in contrury to the nianife»u wcxtnt of the 
•Tlaence, ana the adiuission of ij^^proper evidence. * The ilain- 
tiff* a inteuiate. ut the tisne: of suffering the injuries which 
it io clHimed resulted in iii^ death, wao eeventy-one yi-are 
of uge. An autopsy disclosed that at the tixr^c of idn death 
certain of ..ia internal ortcnns were dlaeaaed, including hlo 
heart* kidneys and stomach. 

J-lamtlff contends that defendant's cor, wiiile at 
a standstill and taking on pausongers, suddenly ana vyitl.out 
warning started wnile decensed was in the act of boarding it, 
with one foot on the runiiini';: boaru, cuuoint him tt- be ti.rown 
to the ground, infliotin(/, injuries frcoi w;.ici. ne oj.ortly tnere- 
after died. 

Yto the contention ti»at the finding of the Jury is 
contrary to the ..anifest //eifcUt of Uie evidence, we are unnole 
to yield our absent. /. careful exa -iuation of the evidence con-

Yinoee uj tnat the jury were Juatified in fiuaing that the 
deferitiant * 3 servant was neeiit ent ii. utartlng the oar before 
plaintiff's intestate und a reasonable opportunity to board 
it![^The probabilities of the situation all £*tront^ly tend 
to ctttnbliah that fact. The deceased wad witi^ nxa wife 
t^nd other fr lends « all of whom were boardiu^i; ttxe cur» and 
nil but deceased auocecsded in so aoing without aociuent. 
All thcst pvraons, including tne deceased* vere in clear 
Tie;» of the oor.ductor and their (urjoue of boarding the car

it wci ti'.c siuty of thfv conductor not to start the car uxitil 
Jill i.hete persons were safely on the oar, and tj tive tiiem 
all aufficient ticje to do so, Knilure iu tuia rc^ifird was 
aotloniible negligence* For the injuries resultint^, to de- 
censed fruc^ i]uc)j not^li^rencQ defendnnt is liable to rcarond 
in damages. 

iiut it iu inaiuted tnnt the pre} onuerance of tne 
evidence proves that dooeaaed died as the result of one or 
more of the several seri-us diseases witii m.ioi, the uutopsy 
upon his body showed he wrs afflicted and tx;»t uucxi aioeuses 
had, at thr tijr4e deceased fell frou> the car, reached "the 
teruiinal Btage.* *ie do not tnink tnat the Jury* in the 
light of tiie evidence before tuecu, would have been Justified 
in so finding, </hile some of the deceased' i> vital organs 
were diseased » tnere is no evidctice iii the record justifying

yearo. The bill further alleges that ohortly heforo the con- 
struction of tho improvement the oljeet car companies ODcrating 
in Lincoln avenun reconBtructod tho street cjir trackt • g pro- 
vided in pn ordinance passed in ^ehruary, 1907; tht't .after the 
tracks vrere reconi:tructe'i and tVic roadway of Lincoln Avenue 
paved by '-^onipiainant undRr it£3 cnntr ct, thr- weir^ht of cars 
operating in Lincoln /.venue wis suhBtantially increi.Bed, and 
that thereafter depreseions gradually in the pavement 
laid by cornplaintunt. The bill avers that the deteriorp.tion in 
the pavement constructed by coraplainfmt wo.n caused b thn insif - 
ficiency of the street rfiil-vay tracks to oupport the heavier 
cars; that th'- weight of the cirs set in moticn vibraticjis of 
the rails, which operated no a pump, forcing" tho vpter out of 
the :.and cushion u-'On which the wooden bQock pavsmcmt rested, 
and with it particles of nand frovn underneath, eliminating the 
sand cushion to such an extend that the v/ooden blocks became de- 
pressed nnd the pr-veraont uneven. 

The bill chi^irgen that tho city called u.on complc'in- 
ant to repair the pavement, and threaten-^d that if complainant 
refused it would cauii-^ the repairs to be made and ap ily in pay- 
ment the amount retained out of the contract price, C^omplainjut 
prayed by itii bill that the city might be prevented from so doing, 
and .)aked that tho cour . declare and define the nature of the re- 
pairs v/iiich under its contract legally devolved upon the complain- 
ant to make* 

The city filed an answer denying among other things 
that the improvement wa^; oroperly constructed , imd claimin^: Lh;it 
the defects in the pavejrcnt were caused by faulty construction, 
and denying that complainant wao entitled to relief. 

Testimony waj taken, an 1 thereupon the cliancellor, 
findin;'!; tiiat there no equit,; in the bill, ordered tl;;!t it be 
dismissed. A decree was entered reciting &t length facts which

the guurjintor h. ;> reference not only to the materials pxid 
work, "but includes the finished product Y,ith reference to 
any reasonable and probable use. There is no frnud or con- 
cealment here. At the date of the contract the heaviest cars 
running on Lincoln Avenue weighed about 59,500 pounds loaded, 
but on other atreet railway lines in Cliicago earn v/ere running 
at this time weighing approximately 57,300 and 70,000 pounds 
loaded. It is a fair inference that this was J-cnov/n to all 
the ptrtiea. It seemti to have been the judgment of those best 
qualified to >^n>v, th;.t the scheme of the improvement would be 
adequate for use by the heavier cars, although Inter experience 
tended to show thnt this judgment was erroneous; but complainant 
was entitled to ita judgment on the matter and properly might 
back its Judgmt.-nt with its guaranty. To tie tiie city to the 
use of the lighter c^irs on Lincoln avenue in ord<^r to hold the 
guarantor is to inject an unreasonable condition into the 

Supporting our view of the liability upon complainant 
under the contract are the decisions in City of L;ike View v, 
MacRitchie . 134 111. 203; Iro quois T-^irnace Co . v. '/ilkin l£fg. 
Co., 181 111. 582; City of Akron v. l^arber ■ sphalt Paving Co., 
171 Fed. Rep. 29. In this Inst cited case the identical question 
before us was under consi deration, and the co'ort in its oninion 

"In regard to * ♦ the introduction of heavier cars 
Upon the tracks, they must, we think, ns a matter of law, 
be treated as having been .vithin the contemplation of the 
paving couipany when ai.^ing the contract. The trr. cka v/ere 
in the street and cars vere being operated over them, and 
no provi;3ion wae made respecting eith' r iijnenr-ionn or 
v'ei;:ht, Nothing violative of my otatute is claimer! in 
regard * to * * the size and weight of the c.:ra. "hose 
matters were plainly nanctioned by the low, rmd they 
involved only such street uses as every one- dealing with 
streets mu t .-intioipnte. " 

Is this a conl act to maintnin a locj^l improvment by 

apv-cial assessment? we hold that it is not, and in thin nonelu-

these monthly payments. This v/ aid trike two years or longer. 
This view of the contract maJccs irrelevant any dis- 
cusaion of ter>timony touching the reaoonahleneas or otherwise 
of the time taken by defendant to perfect hit; title, Defendamt 
would not be c-lled u^on to frive title until the expir. tion of 
at lenot t^o year a. 

It i3 evident, however, that the contract contemplates 
that plaintiff should have possession "before t?ie tirce arriv-d 
when he would he entitlea to a deod, Thia appears fron: the 
agreGm<j:it of <iefendant to make repairs, and the ugre'-rcent of 
plaintiff to pay taxes, as essments, fire insurance, and also 
the covenant in tin: a^rr enni';nt that bhould plaintiff default 
the defen-iiint sh'Xild •♦have th-.; rifjit to re-enter and take poe- 
aeficion of the premises," 

The time when defendant should f^ive poasesaion not 
being definitely expressed, the Irw implicB thr t it will be in 
8 reasonable time (Hamilton v, o cully, Hi. 111. 19,?.); ; " 
see no reason why the pa-^tieu may not agree V(:;rbally • ;; oo '/lat 
is a reaHOnable time, Pri.rol tostimony a;: to such an agreement 
does not tend to changii or alter the ^/ritten instruiaerit . It 
was testified by plaint if!', and no+, s^riou .ly disputed, thr, t de- 
fendant agreed to give possession of the preraiyos by \pril 15, 
1914, ?3nd the corret;ponf^.enoQ of the partico tends to prove such 
an a{;reenent. The contract is d-.ted i^.irch 25th, and or- f.B 
Hay 18th plaintiff had not been given possession. ."-hii: old 

that the parol agreement r.a to potisession \r; s valid, yet the

Py thip ap'peal defendants seek to have reversed a 

judgment for *3,334.35 had by plaintiff in a euit tc recover 

purchase r;oney paid on a ccntract for land and Siiareo of atcck, 

which plaintiff claicje v/as breached by def -ir.d ant f?, thereby S!!- 

titlin^; bin: tc rescind. _ ^ ,,. 

^)f^ The contract is' dated I.'aroh 11, 1911. Py it plaintiff 

agreed to buy and deferdantr, to sell about 8C acrea c "^ land in 

Colorado, and 80 pharen of the capital stock c'" the Pejiinan 

(an irrigation concern), 
Tyndicate Ditch Company/, for *5,4C0, payable in four inotal]-

or be "ore Inarch 11, 1"12, tho others in t'vo and three yearn 

respectively. Va.en the payment di;e on or before I'arch 11, InlS, 

was made plaintiff was to be '"entitled to an abntract cf title 

and tc a warranty deed to Raid land," and the "C..>l]er agrees

"If seller fails at any tine tr carry ci.t the teri'-.s

Alec that "time shall be the e88eri:3e of this contract." 

Fet7/een March llti. and *pril 4tl., 1911, plaintiff 
took pcBBeGSicn of the land. Or April 4, 1911, he paid the 
installment of '*1,£00 which was due on or before March 11, 1912, 
and thereupon by the terms of the contract he became entitled 
to an abstract of title and warranty deed and the transfer to 
him of the 80 shares of ditch stock . Defendants did net then 
deliver any of these and niade no tender until December 26, 191C, 
when a deed was tendered and refused. Plaintiff claims that 
under the contract defendants have failed to carry out their 
obligation and that he ip entitled to rescind and recover back 
the money paid on the purchase price. ^^^ 

Plaintiff remained in pcsseseion of the premises from 
about April 4, ISll, until June, 191S, and defendants say in 
defense that by thus continuing in possession beyond the time 
specified in the contract for the delivery of the abstract and 
deed, plaintiff waived the element of time and could not put 
defendants in default until he had notified them that he would 
rescind unless defendants performed by a time certain. 

Although time be made the essence of a contract, yet 
this condition may be waived, and a course of conduct by the 
parties may amount to a waiver. Lancaster v. Poberts . 144 111. 
213; !v:cnacn v. Brandon, 159 111. 61. It would also seem equit- 
able that a buyer should not have the right to rescind and at 
the same time continue in possession. Ope. j on v. ^ngebc , 151 
?ac. Rep. 1146. 

After consideration o*" the evidence we hold that plain- 
tiff had the right to rescind and to reo"ver. In '^pril, 1912, 
plaintiff demanded performance by defendants, saying that if 
the deed was net '/within three days suit would be 
brought. Defendants doing nothing, in the following June he 
abandoned the premises. This notice, 'vitli the giving up of

pcesessicn, amourted tc a rsscisnicn arci iniponed liability on 
the defendants. At this time the only ccligaticn between the 
parties was thai there was Roney due and cwing from defendants 
to plaintiff. 

It is argued that suteequert letters ehcv that plain- 
tiff" in effect waived hi?' resciepicn, or at leart shov/ th;it 
he had net intended to rescind, '"^e do not think so. They 
indicate no more thcin a willingness by plaint if :^ tc buy the 
land at the price named in the contract, provided defendants 
gave or allowed him a sum sufficient to compensate him for 
daciages claimed to have resulted through their delay. No 
agreement as to the air.ount of this compensation \vas ever made. 

Neither do thinV that the exchange of properties 
discussed by plaintiff with i^'Oonnor Pros, is of controlling 
importarce. Defendant-^ were urging plaint if "^ to agree to sou.e 
kind of settlement of their controversy, and plaintiff, with- 
out changing his status with defendants, could investigate as 
to what kind of sale or exchange of the land he might be able 
tc carry through, '^hat teri'.s he would be willing tc make with 
defendants might well depend on what disposition of the land 
he would be able tc make. 

^laintif argues that no certificates o" ditch stock 
were ever tendered. "'ithcut discussing this, are inclined 
tc agree .vith the content icn of defendants' counsel on this 
point, tc the effect that under the terms of the contract and 
according to the method of handlinr; such matters in Coloradc 
no actual delivery of certificates o" stock was contemplated 
by the parties. 

Pegardless of other considerations this juigment should 
be affirmed en the broad ground that defendants were re-iuired 
to furnish an atstract and deed within a reasonable time, and

TliiB writ of error brings in revieir a judgment 
of th« kunicipal Court against plaintiff in error. Louis 
Kohn, fining him vlCC, entered in a prosecution in that 
Court for a breach of the peace. The defendant waived a 
Jury. The coiuplaining witness was Isaac A, Doff, a member 
of the firm of Doff Brothers, cloak i&anuf acturers, and the 
defendant was a member of a firm doing business under the 
name of the Fohn Cloak &. ijult Company. The Doff firm aold 
to the Kohn Company, June 6, 11^13, a bill of gcods on a 
credit of ten dnya, it is clearly shown by the order 
signed by doldstein, the buyer for the Company, and by 
i.oldstein's testimony tixat the goods were iiuld on a credit 
of ten days, and also by tiie testiaiony given for the defend- 
ant, that the defendant changed the duplicate of the order 
80 as to show that the goods were bought on a credit of 
thirty days. July 9, the complaining witness went to the 
store of the Kohn Company, and der.ianded payment of the bill, 
Eisenberg, ; annger of the Kohn Company, said the bill v/as 
not due. The complaining witness hud taken with him Gold- 
stein, the buyer who gave the order, who, on being snown 
the duplicatf order in the poeseosion of the ? ohn Company, 
said that "they doped the duplicate." Angry words were ex- 
changed arid i-lsenberg aert for plHintiff in error, i.ouis 
hohn. i.e came and grabbed Doff by the arm to put x^im out

cip&l Court shall taice Juaicial notice of ordinances, but 
tJiia Court cannot do 30. If tne plaintiff in error desired 
to preserYe for presentation to tnis Court the question 
idiether the Court could from the eyidence properly find de- 
fendant guilty of a Tiolation of Section ^.012 of the }.'unici«

We cannot, or the eridence in ttaa record, say 
th?^t the Court mi^ht not properly find defendant guilty of 
a violation of anid oection ^vyl^, and finding no error in 
procedure sufficient to warrant or require a reversal of 
the julgment, the judgment is affirmed,

the oTerrulint: of dcfondamt'a reotiono for new trial and in
